I nursed until DD was 4 months, then I dried up. I will try for longer this time.

My goals line up to over 12 mo. I couldn't BF my twins so I'm hoping to ebf this baby :) we'll see how I feel about going longer if we make it to 12 mo.

what if he attempts to stop before 2?

Quoting pinkiebabii:

Ds has been exclusively breastfed for 1 month and he turned a month old today.
I will let him self wean any time after 2.

Each of my children it was different. The longest I was able to breastfeed was 2 month with my oldest.

I breastfed for 6 1/2 months. I stopped because I was starting high school again and she's obviously not in my care while I'm there. She was also starting to wean anyways so I felt it was the right time. When I have more and I'm not in school I'm going to try and BF until around 12-14 months.

12 months is great in my opinion:)

I breastfed my daughter for 12 months. She has always been independent and weaned herself.
